Teacherly Warm Fuzzies

I had a moment while teaching tonight, a couple in fact.

We've been working with sagat, and this was our 6th session with them. We've been doing variations on the gallop - plain 3s initially, then it 1-3-3-3, last week it was 3-3-7, and this week it was 5-3-3. One of the students, who is a smashing dancer, commented how much easier it all was now, than when we first started with the sagat. congratulations all round, on how well they've managed. It always makes me feel all nice when students realise *for themselves* just how far they've come.

And the same student, who won't be coming back to my classes because her time at Surrey Uni is over, and she'll be going back home to somewhere far away from here, was saying how much she's enjoyed the classes, and she wants to carry on bellydancing, at home. I hope she does, and I hope her next teacher carries on the good work and maintains her enthusiasm, because she's really got potential.

I was particularly touched by these comments, because she's always been one of the quieter ones in class.
